WorldWideLearn.com, the world's premier online directory of education, has a new Guide to Graduate Schools to help visitors get started in their advanced career training (http://worldwidelearn.com/online-education-guide/graduate-schools.htm). People with a master's degree, Ph.D, MBA, or graduate certificate are more likely to find better-paying jobs, be promoted faster, and avoid unemployment, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
"The math is simple: a graduate degree equals a higher salary and greater job satisfaction. And earning a graduate degree online is convenient and affordable," says WorldWideLearn.com producer Doug Jones. "WorldWideLearn.com's new Guide to Graduate Schools provides you the information you need to pursue an online MBA, master's degree, doctorate, or graduate certificate." The Guide to Graduate Schools features articles on career and education planning and assessment, as well as links to many different types of online degrees and graduate schools (http://worldwidelearn.com/online-education-guide/graduate-schools.htm).
Salary.com reports that the tough job market, small salary increases, and growing educational requirements in the workplace have sent more and more people back to school for a graduate degree because, "on average, a higher level of education translates into a higher annual salary."
- The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that in 2006, the average person with a master's degree earned 18.5 percent more than the average person with a bachelor's degree.
- Salary.com calculates that employees with a master's degree earned an average of $53,000 in 2003; employees with a bachelor's degree averaged $10,000 less.
- The U.S. Census Bureau finds that the average person with a bachelor's degree will have lifetime earnings of about $2.1 million. A master's degree will bring in about $2.5 million, and a doctorate will help gross nearly $3.4 million in a lifetime.
